Trivia[edit]

  • Kyhlo was a fortress in Ascalon, home of the legendary guild Ascalon's Chosen. During the Third Guild War, it was besieged by the Zealots of Shiverpeak. Mordakai and Burian can be seen among the ranks of Ascalon's Chosen.
  • During an early beta of Guild Wars, Kyhlo was an outpost in Ascalon, but was later renamed to Ascalon City.
  • In the Feburary 8th, 2017 update, the clocktower has had its roof removed and its side-entrances have been made easier accessable, buildings and boxes were made indestructable by trebuchet fire. They will automatically destroy themselves as the match progresses. An additional exit from each side's spawn has been added.
    • Before the update, you could destroy buildings, boxes and the roof, walls and windows of the clocktower.
